I wonder why the boat ramp is empty?

Guest Profile

Dustin Murray is a National Guard recruiter who hails from the oldest city in the U.S., St. Augustine. With a rich history, numerous attractions, and beautiful beaches, it is a popular destination for many folks. However, to the avid angler it’s the fishing that’s the big draw. Dustin is all about that, and enjoys both inshore and nearshore saltwater fishing in the St. Augustine waters. Yet, when the fishing is that good in a place, it’s rare that you find the boat ramp empty. A little Category 5 hurricane can change all that. Time for some hurricane fishing!

Fishing experience

Dustin catches all of the salty species in the St. Augustine area. Inshore, these include redfish, spotted seatrout, flounder, and snook. Nearshore, tarpon and cobia are the big ticket items. But not to be overlooked is the crevalle jack, aka “ghetto permit”. These feisty fish take a back seat to no other in the fight department. As Dustin learned when doing a little hurricane fishing (no that’s not a typo), when they get fired up there’s gonna be mayhem.
